The Anesthesiology residency program at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital is an ACGME accredited four-year program. Currently, we accept 13 residents who begin their training at the Clinical Anesthesia 1 (CA-1) level, the PGY-2 year, and 4 medical students who desire to complete their internship (PGY-1) and anesthesia residency at Jefferson. We are in the process of transitioning to a 60 resident program with 15 residents per year.
Anesthesia residents are given the opportunity to develop clinical excellence in all areas of anesthesia. They provide a major portion of the anesthetic care, including preoperative evaluation and postoperative follow-up, and routinely interact with members of all surgical and medical subspecialties.
Residents develop the expertise required to anesthetize a wide variety of patients safely, to manage pain and ICU patients, to successfully achieve certification by the American Board of Anesthesiology, and to function as true consultants in Anesthesiology. Research opportunities are available for those who wish to participate under the direction of established faculty mentors. Residents having abstracts accepted at national meetings have their registration and travel expenses sponsored by the department.
